Ray’s Candy might be closing…

Posted on | January 7, 2010 | 1 Comment

Sad news from the East Village today.  The rumor mill is in full effect with speculation that 36 year old Ray’s Candy Store (113 Avenue A @ 7th Street) is 2 months behind on rent & the landlord (through their goon/agent) is threatening to padlock the doors as soon as tomorrow.

‘according to Ray at 10PM tonight the managing agent of his building–accompanied by her bodyguard– informed him that he has until Friday to pay the 2 months rent that he owes. The agent noted that the next time she comes to the store she will have a chain and padlocks to close the store.’

It would be really sad to lose this place!  Rally the troops!  Go there for waffles, fries or the new Phili (sic) Cheese Steak!

    Sorry to hear of the possible closing of Ray’s. The current economy is causing many establishments to redefine their budgets and expenses, but nothing can make up for a decline in sales.
